GFN Thursday Highlights Legendary Moments From the New Season of Apex Legends

‘NVIDIA Highlights’ lets players share their big wins and win big with ‘Legends of GeForce NOW.’
by GeForce NOW Community

GFN Thursday is our weekly celebration of games streaming from GeForce NOW. This week, we’re kicking off Legends of GeForce NOW, a special event that challenges gamers to show off the best Apex Legends: Legacy moments using one of the features that makes GeForce NOW unique — NVIDIA Highlights.

Let No Victory Go Unrecorded

That one time, you did that one thing, and you wish you were recording? That’s where NVIDIA Highlights comes in.

Highlights enables automatic video capture of key moments, clutch kills and match-winning plays. GeForce NOW adds Highlights support to additional games with the use of smart pattern and image recognition from our cloud servers to automatically detect and capture epic moments in games like Apex Legends.

As you play, Highlights are saved locally, without interrupting your flow. They can be reviewed in the GeForce NOW app’s Gallery, found in the top-left corner of the app. You can even stitch clips together for the ultimate Highlight montage, and share your victories with the world on Twitter, YouTube, Discord and more.

Apex Legends with NVIDIA Highlights on GeForce NOW
You’ll be prompted to enable NVIDIA Highlights the first time you launch Apex Legends, or other supported games, on GeForce NOW.

Highlights is available for GeForce NOW members using the PC and Mac apps. You’ll see a prompt to turn it on when you launch a supported game through the app, or you can toggle the feature from the in-game overlay by hitting Ctrl+G on PC or Cmd+G on Mac.

But that’s not all. The GeForce NOW in-game overlay is where to manually capture gameplay, turn on Instant Replay, take screenshots, enable NVIDIA Freestyle and a whole lot more. Use this article to learn about the powerful feature.
